I’m a homeschooling mom in California, and I want to help moms start homeschool, choose a curriculum, and get organized. Homeschooling is a new journey, and it’s only fair that you get help along the way.
Our world would be better off if we had a community of people to turn to for answers. A shoulder to cry on or to vent frustrations. I’m only one of the thousands of moms navigating this sometimes rough terrain, but I hope my posts can help.
1.Help You Effortlessly Pick What Type of Homeschooling Will Work Best!
In California, you have options, but everyone’s life looks different. Do you want to choose homeschool privately with a PSA or an independent homeschool charter?
Maybe you work part-time remotely before the kids wake up, or you own a business outside of the home. You want to homeschool, but it needs to line up realistically with your schedule and values.
Without a doubt, your opinions about parenting and life go hand in hand with how you homeschool. What works for one family may not work for yours. I want to help you think about what makes your family unique and go from there.
2. Reminding You to Stay True to Your Family
Homeschooling is not “school at home” and does not need to be an all-day tornado of to-dos. Instead, homeschooling can be a pleasant stroll versus an exhausting sprint to somewhere nice.
Plan not to plan so much into your day. Keep the goals for the school year simple.
Every family starts homeschooling from a different place. You might have a little one in kindergarten or are making a transition out of the traditional 8-2 school.
Trying to make your homeschool look like what you think it is “supposed” to be will lead to burnout. With this in mind, my advice will always be to make things as simple as possible.
3.Helping You to Easily Select a Homeschooling Curriculum
Picking a curriculum is where a lot of parents get stuck. Instead, I’m on a mission to get you out of the selection process as quickly as possible!
There are a lot of choices, and the stakes feel high! What if I pick out this curriculum, and it sucks? What if it is too challenging or not challenging enough?
Well, that’s the cool thing about homeschool. You can change the curriculum to fit your family or ditch it.
Like me, if you went to a “regular” school as a kid, you had the same curriculum all year long, no matter what. Not the case in homeschool.
Sometimes what looks shiny is not. It happens. Every time you like or dislike a curriculum, you learn more about yourself, your kids, and your family, and you still come out ahead.
4.Give You Tools to Help You Homeschool in Record Time
I love having a step-by-step roadmap to do things with many steps. Goooo checklists!
I would love to help you make homeschooling as simple as possible. We should also have more of everything for diverse families.
Homeschooling is for everyone, and we all need help. I will be creating posts, printables, ebooks, and anything necessary to help you feel successful with homeschooling.
Let’s make what seems impossible possible. I also take requests, and I can take my love of organization and my background in education to make a difference in your homeschooling life.
5. Helping California Homeschool Moms Find Homeschool Community
Wouldn’t it be great to have a community for advice and questions? Or an easy place to go to set up a playdate? Isn’t it nice when someone gets you?
Families homeschool all over the United States, so having a local community that understands all things as a California homeschool mom is helpful.
It seems like every few months; there is a legislative bill trying to make it a bit more difficult to homeschool. Having a community comes in handy to understand changes in homeschool laws.
Need some tips on the best fun and educational places to go? Save time by listening to the advice of other homeschool moms.
We are human, and socialization is essential. Sometimes, homeschooling is a lonely place, and I want homeschooling to feel more fun.
If one person gets helped from my posts, that would be great. I would love to be one of the places you go for advice that makes sense.
Homeschooling can feel like sink or swim, and it doesn’t need to be that way. Keeping homeschooling simple, avoiding comparing, and having a place to get advice can go a long way.
We can’t do this alone, and you don’t have to.
